The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion along with the Diocese of Green Bay announced Tuesday a life-size casting of Michelangelo’s ‘Pieta’ was placed at the National Shrine. The ‘Pieta’ is the exact replica of the one at St. Peter’s Basilica. The National Shrine will now have one of the only one hundred that will be produced across the world.
Director of Communications and Event Coordinator Cory Campbell for the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help shared the significance of bringing the replica to the facility.
The Pieta will become the focal point and be displayed at the new “Mother of Mercy Center” and “Events Center” set to open in the spring of 2019.
